A Study to Delineate Roles and Functions of Medical Record Personnel: Final Report.
American Medical Record Association, Chicago, IL.
In order to be able to comply, and to be able to document their compliance, with federal legislation regarding health occupations education and discriminatory practices, the American Medical Record Association conducted a study to see if a data base could be built to validate proficiency tests for medical personnel. The report was prepared to document the structure, processes, and outcomes of the study, the Role and Functions Project. Six major concerns were: patient care standards, acceptability to health care field, integrity of medical record profession, occupational levels for proficiency tests, relevancy to job performance, and career mobility. The report discusses purpose, methodology, results, conclusions, medical record models, and recommendations. It contains 45 conclusions, three analytic models, and 15 action recommendations. About two-thirds of the report is devoted to appendixes: policies for the development of credentialing mechanisms for health personnel; a 20-page bibliography; reports on State Medical Record Associations' Tasks 1 and 2; final report on affect measurement of medical record personnel; and formative evaluation report for roles, functions, training, and proficiency tests for medical record personnel project.
